I suggested a while ago that it would be best to go through a CSR, either by chat or phone. Not all available channels show up on the website that can be included in your choice of package. Others...

Angry 630s powering up by themselves

I have four 630s in my home, each on a different remote address, 000, 001, 006, 007. Quite often I find one or another of the units is powered ON by itself. I’m not sure why this is happening.

My timers have gone to N/A in the last little while. Only shows for today and overnight are still in upcoming. I suspect there are issues somewhere but I doubt it is with your 630 or mine.
